Bruins announce rookie camp roster

The Bruins announced their roster for rookie camp, which is set to begin next Wednesday at Ristuccia Arena. It is as follows:

FORWARDS: Anthony Camara, Mitchell Dempsey, Campbell Elynuik, Alex Fallstrom, Justin Florek, Seth Griffith, Jayden Hart, Alexander Khokhlachev, Jared Knight, Matthew Lindblad, Wayne Simpson, Ryan Spooner, Maxime Villemaire

DEFENSEMEN: Mickael Beauregard, Chris Casto, Alex Cord, Tommy Cross, Jesse Lees, Steven Spinell, Zach Trotman

GOALTENDERS: Adam Morrison, Malcolm Subban

The notable exception here is Joe Morrow, a defenseman picked 23rd overall in the 2011 draft by the Penguins [1] and was acquired in the trade that sent Tyler Seguin [2] to Dallas.

Morrow, 20, figures to spend at least a year or two in the AHL before he figures to contend for a full-time job in Boston. Here’s what Peter Chiarelli said about him the day they acquired him:

“Still a young player, very strong skater, finding his way, but we have a lot of time for him and we think he can develop into a top four NHL [3] defenseman with the right development.”
